Watch the sun rise over Snowdon Workshop

A real one-off, and worth the seriously early start!

This unique days hike from just outside Beddgelert climbs the Nantlle Ridge to watch the sunrise above Snowdon. We’ll traverse the Nantlle Ridge, visit the ruins of the Prince of Wales Quarry and finish in the woodlands of Beddgelert.

The walk is approximately 6.4 miles climbing up 670meters ( 2200ft) and will last about 5 hours.

We start in the valley in the dark with head torches heading up the clear and winding path that leads up to the peak of Y-Garn. If we time things correctly we’ll reach the top just as the sun rises above Snowdon.

We then traverse the Nantlle Ridge, which includes an easy but dramatic grade 1 scramble, then begin our descent to the ruins of the Prince of Wales Quarry.

From here we then descend further into Beddgelert Forest to take some woodland shots before finishing back at the road.

This walk is limited to 6 people and costs £75pp. Please complete the booking form at the bottom of this page to pay your £10 deposit and book your place.
